chemguide: CIE A level chemistry support Cambridge University Press (CUP) have just published (January 2011) a brand new book covering the whole of the CIE A level chemistry course, including the Applications section. The book includes a useful CD-ROM which has answers to all the end-of-chapter questions amongst other things. The CD-ROM is usable by both PCs and Macs. The book has been written by a completely different set of authors from the old book and the Applications Support Booklet - and it shows! The new book is written in an extremely student-friendly way. That's not to say that there won't be mistakes in the book, and perhaps odd bits missed out (see below). I have so far only read parts of the book, but I have no hesitation in recommending it. You can find out more about it by following the Amazon links below. Cambridge International AS and A Level Chemistry Coursebook with CD-ROM A Hong Kong student recently told me that delivery of a book from Amazon.co.uk took about 2 weeks.

Chemistry Virtual Textbook Acid-base chemistry can be extremely confusing, particularly when dealing with weak acids and bases. This set of lessons presents an updated view of the Brønsted-Lowry theory that makes it easy to understand answers to common questions: What's the fundamental difference between a strong acid and a weak acid? Can acid A neutralize base B? Why are some salts acidic and others alkaline? This complete rewrite of the previous 1996 pdf document is now organized into seven lessons covering all aspects of the subject. Much emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of calculations, including how to deal with quadratic equations and how to judge when approximations are appropriate.

Unicycling Inspires Chemist, More And Better Chocolate | June 17, 2013 Issue - Vol. 91 Issue 24 [+]Enlarge Champ: Max Schulze, unicycler and chemist. Credit: Minesh Bacrania It was because of a Father’s Day gift that 21-year-old Max Schulze, a rising senior honors student in chemistry at Colorado School of Mines, became a world champion unicyclist. Eight years ago, Max and his older brother bought their dad a unicycle for the holiday, which was observed this year on Sunday, June 16, in the U.S. and many other countries. As it turned out, Schulze’s father didn’t really get the hang of riding the one-wheeled contraption. Schulze didn’t start out with the aim of being a world champion. Soon, he was taking part in local competitions by hopping curbs, riding along sloped handrails, and jumping over obstacles. By his senior year in high school, Schulze, then 18 years old, went to the 2010 Unicycle World Championships & Convention in New Zealand (Unicon) and placed first in the high-jump and trial events. So, the Newscripts gang wondered, is there any link between unicycling and chemistry?
